Tuesday 7/29/08 6:25 am: The view from our room

Starting from my right you’re seeing towards AMC Movie theater from the Dream Tower of the Disneyland Hotel.

Put all 3 photos together and that’s the view out of our room at the Disneyland Hotel Dream Tower. The picture below is the view looking towards the left out of our balcony sliding glass doors.

I tried logging on to and posting to Disney Echo but without Wi-Fi and on AT&T Edge network it’s frustratingly slow on my iPhone. Will post there later if possible.

Monday we left the house late and unexpected Interstate 12 closure and State Trooper slow convoying made us be too late for our 6:10 am CDT departing flight. Rich on his iPhone called Continental Airlines and booked us later flights. We couldn’t sit together, though.

We went to an In and Out, popular regional hamburger chain, for lunch. Went to Target and got last minute things. Checked in. Stopped in at Lego Store. Went on walking tour of DCA with Jiminy. Rode fabulous Toy Story Mania, you guys GOTTA try that the next time you’re at WDW or Disneyland’s DCA! Ate dinner at Wine Country Trattoria. Could see all of Electrical Parade from dining venue. Dinner ran late so DCA closed at 9 pm and Soarin’ was closed at 8:40 pm before we could use our Fast Passes to there. At 5 pm line was only 30-minutes long, we shoulda just rode it then! After dinner walked in Downtown Disney and went into stores Vault 28 and Lego Store again. Went back to room and bade farewell to Jiminy/Lisa. Son found Discovery Channel and Shark Week programming but zonked out fast asleep after 15-minutes. We went to bed soon after.

Today is early entry at Disneyland and we have 9am reservations for Minnie’s character breakfast on Main Street at Plaza Inn. Cloudy this morning, mild temperatures, cooler than the Gulf Coast this time of year!

From Rich:
Yesterday we walked, from the Disneyland Hotel, through Downtown Disney, a lot of DCA, and back again, a total of 2,305 steps (1.08 miles) — in just that part of the afternoon and night.

Compare that to what I usually walk in an average day at home — 1100 to 3500 steps — and that explains why I already have two blisters!

Looking straight down from our balcony.

The exterior elevator shaft to the concierge level can be seen to the right of our balcony.

About the Disney Echo

This website is not affiliated with any part of The Walt Disney Company.

The Disney Echo at DisneyEcho.emuck.com is your interactive online magazine to discover new wonders and share magical Disney memories.

The display on this page is set up to show the posts in reverse chronological order of when they were posted originally, so if you want to read the reports from the beginning, go to the last post on the last page and work forward. The first entry about the Koster family's July 2008 Disneyland trip can be found by clicking here and the first entry about their Easter 2008 Disneyland trip can be found by selecting this link.

That link goes to the very first travel-related article on this website: Welcome to our Trip Report.

The entry made after that first one is found after clicking the link named "Our Vacation Plans At-A-Glance" and that link is found above and below the first entry.

The third entry is similarly found after clicking the link above and below the second one, where the link is named "Packing Up"

One can read all the travel-related entries in the order they were posted by going to the next entry and the next entry the same way. Otherwise, this website defaults to displaying the most-recently-posted entries followed by older entries below it on the page as well as on the pages after it.

For more details, see What's a Disney Echo?
